Residents concerned about changes to Wrightsville Ave.

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Neighbors met Thursday afternoon to discuss the future of Wrightsville Avenue.

A City of Wilmington focus group is reviewing the current zoning and land use plans for the area between Military Cutoff and the Causeway Bridge.

Most residents are concerned about how the new regulations will impact the character of the area. They are concerned that hard and fast rules about building setbacks and height requirements will force new buildings to all look the same.

The next public input session will be held November 12 at 6:30 pm at Winter Park Baptist Church.
